Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 28 August 2001



ExtraTainment CEO Curt Roth will be speaking at the Mobile Multimedia Messaging congress on Tuesday the 18th of September 2001 at the Cavalieri Hotel in Rome, Italy.

Roth will be speaking at 16h10 on the second day of the congress. His presentation is titled "Effectively Providing Innovative Content Using Multimedia Messaging". He will discuss questions like 'How will the multimedia content differ from text messaging services or mobile email?' and 'How will content and multimedia messaging differ depending on type of network used?'

Mobile multimedia messaging is the transferring of data of all kinds across mobile devices, including pictures and animation content. This technology allows for the use of mobile devices for more than speech and text, turning the possibility of mobile internet into a reality.
